New Painting and TWO NEW BOOKS! Gothic Art Now, and Spectrum 15

Hi everyone!

I have one wonderful new Rococo portrait-style painting (and it is FRAMED) for you and then news about TWO NEW BOOKS now available for pre-order!

"Butterflies in Gloom" is a truly beautiful painting! 13"x15" framed & ready-to-hang! A Rococo style portrait of a big eyed fairy girl, and a matching butterfly in the gloom, it is painted in subtle colours with an antique feel to it. Yes, you get the FRAME too - and it is beautiful! Framed by my wonderful husband, Matt. It is an original acrylic painting on a masonite panel (8"x10" in size) and it has been framed in an AMAZING posh-looking, gold leafed wooden antique frame with an Oval window cutout shape that really makes this piece even more stunning and suits the painting perfectly! She is 100% ready-to-hang - just stick her up on a nail on the wall, and you are good to go! She is up in my eBay store at a fixed price where she will remain until purchased (otherwise I'll take her with me to FaerieCon with me, so grab her if you want her!) - you can see her full-sized and with details by clicking below....

Now - the NEW BOOKS! Neither of these are solo art books, but collaborative works featuring myself along with many of the best artists in the genre today.

First is a book alled "Gothic Art Now" - this is one of the most stunning art books I've seen in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because I'm the author, hehe. I'm not a writer per se, but when Ilex Press approached me last year to do this book for Harper Collins, and I saw the prospectus and the artists they wanted for the book, I couldn't say no! It's been a pet project of mine for the past year, a labour of love. "Gothic Art Now" is written by me, and the Foreward is by Brom (one of the masters of contemporary art today!). Brom also has some art in there, too. This is not a book just of my art - in fact there are only a couple of paintings of mine in there, but I promise you will love this book! 192 full colour pages, HARDCOVER, printed beautifully (with a fantastic cover painting from the talented Natalia Pierandrei), and featuring some of the best contemporary Gothic artworks out there - oil paintings, acrylic, digital paintings, sculpture, mixed media, pencil, installment art, ceramics, puppets, creatures, even stained glass are represented in here. Some of my personal favourite artists are in here: master HR Giger, Brom, David Bowers, Scott Radke, Daniel Martin Diaz, Anne Stokes, Laurie Lipton, Steven Kenny, Jessica Joslin, David Stoupakis, Lola Strange, Thomas Kuebler, Dorian Cleavenger, Gus Fink, Carrie Ann Baade, John U Abrahamson, Erlend Mørk, Ryohei Hase, David Gough, Christian Alzmann, and more.... I'm not stocking the book myself at my website (my house is too full of my other books, lol) - but it will be in bookstores EVERYWHERE at the end of next month. All at less than $20 up at HERE at Amazon if you pre-order it! It comes out on October 21st, but I strongly suggest pre-ordering for the discount (I can't believe it's less than $20, it's 200 pages of full colour art in a hardcover book!). It's up at Amazon right now - go buy it - CLICK HERE!


And the next book..... "Spectrum 15"! It's getting to be that time of year! Since I was a kid, I've bought "Spectrum" every fall, I always associate it with Autumn. This is the third Spectrum I have the honour of being in - Spectrum 15! (So far I've made it into Spectrum 11, Spectrum 13, and now 15). Spectrum 15 is the annual collection of some of the best fantasy and science fiction artwork of that year. It'll be out November 1st, and is finally up at Amazon for pre-order! Also less than $20, it will have some of the best artwork I've ever seen (always does!). It will also have my "Alchemy Angel" triptych in it, hehehe..... I'm not stocking this myself, but it wll be in bookstores everywhere this fall - but mostly I suggest CLICKING HERE to Pre-Order "Spectrum 15" at Amazon.

You can see all of my current solo & collaborative book projects of course on my Books Page on my website by CLICKING HERE!

Back to painting!
